Apparently five wasn’t enough. That must have been what Yannick Gingras was thinking as he took to the track Saturday night at The Meadowlands.

On the heels of a five win night on Friday, Gingras did one-better, winning six on the Saturday program.

Included in his victories was a win in the featured $30,000 Free For All Handicap with Bettors Edge, who went right to the lead, setting fractions of :26.3, :54.2 and 1:22.3 before completing a wire-to-wire tour-de-force in 1:50. Bettors Edge is owned by Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and the M1 Stable LLC. The win was one of three on the card for leading trainer Ron Burke.

The other story on the program was the success of horses headed to Monday’s Meadowlands January Mixed Sale presented by Tattersalls. In fact, by night’s end, five horses entered in the sale were victorious, including Alexie Mattosie, Allstar Legend, Emeritus Maximus, Tarpon Hanover and Wake Up Peter. The sale is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. in the back paddock at The Meadowlands.

Saturday was another $3 million night at The Meadowlands, with the total handle just under $3.2 million.

Racing returns on Wednesday, January 22, with an 11-race program, including the final of the Super Bowl Trotting Series, with first post time at 7:15 p.m. This will be the last live racing program until after the Super Bowl, when live racing returns Thursday, February 6. The Meadowlands will remain open for simulcasting through Sunday, January 26. It will then be closed from Monday, January 27 through Monday, February 3 and will re-open for simulcasting on Tuesday, February 4. Meadowlands customers can attend Winners Bayonne from January 27 through February 3, so they don’t miss a minute of the simulcast action.
